Note unusual time

The idea is simple: correlate the physical world with the virtual world in such a way that humans can conveniently access services and applications that are tuned to their circumstances and needs, “in the moment”. But does this work in practice? What are the system implications? And what is it good for, anyway? I will draw on work in ubiquitous computing, including recent studies of physically-embedded security protocols.
